Good article about potential lockout - Interview with Stinchcomb

NEW ORLEANS – The fur and the rhetoric are just beginning to fly between NFL owners/league management and the NFL Players Association.

In other words, the two sides have only begun to fight.

In a sense, the first salvo was fired Sunday by NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith, who used the phrase “we’re at war’’ to describe the current labor negotiations. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell quickly refuted Smith’s incredulously insensitive analogy, saying: "This is not anywhere near a war. This is a business dispute that we've got to get resolved."

Then, New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie interjected his two cents. "You got our head union rep acting like an a-hole," he told the New York Daily News. "They got their guys acting like a-holes. So they just need to get their s**t together and just get it done."

To which I said “Amen’’ and sought the level-headed perspective of veteran New Orleans Saints right tackle and player rep Jon Stinchomb.

Full interview below.

Good read regardless which side of the fence you are on. Alot of good points by Stinchcomb. Still focused on the ring.

Good read, good to hear the players are working on plans to train together in case there is a work stoppage hope it doesn't come to that

Most of the player reps sound more sane than Demaurice Smith and his lawyer posturing. I don't think the NFLPA made a good hire.

Smith is just following the Union negotiating script. He's not reinventing the wheel.

i just hope most of ours guys saved for a rainy day. some young guys that are making minumum or even better will catch the bull by the tail and not the horns. most take care of there money and some just try and live the life of the rich and will be broke before they retire. does anyone know if theres a unemployment comp in the nfl besides what like normal benifits like we would recieve?

If I am a player rep and I hear this moron sounding like a Reverend Lenox Thomas, I know we're screwed...
